Karnival of Trash Mail Art Call: Fake Moan Lisa Trashpo by Richard Canard (Carbondale, Illinois, USA)


Mail art by Richard Canard (Carbondale, Illinois, USA)

The Karnival of Trash has inspired exploration of Trashpo form and dialogs far beyond anything I would have predicted when I began what I considered to be at the time a limited and humble call. Today we have what might be more precisely viewed as an homage (rather than a fake) to Moan Lisa by none other than his eminence Richard Canard. Perhaps you missed Moan Lisa’s most recent entry upon which Richard’s work is based:


Here is a closer look at Richard Canard’s elegant calligraphy:


I believe this is the first art created by Richard Canard that addresses the Moan Lisa phenom, but I might be wrong. Here is the reverse side:


My conjecture is that this is Richard’s response to the grease stains on the Moan Lisa work. Actually, I find this visually pleasing. What about you?

Thanks as ever to Richard Canard for this and other pieces that have arrived during the Karnival of Trash.
